On Wednesday, July 8th 2009 American Public University (APU) System, an accredited higher-education institution offering undergraduate and graduate degrees online, hosted hundreds of prospective students in a virtual environment. In an increasingly competitive and global marketplace for skilled workers, online education is becoming an efficient and popular way for people to build credentials, switch careers, or qualify for a new job.
At APU’s EduFair, the first-ever virtual university admissions event, students discussed academic and career plans with faculty, explored financial aid options and transfer credits with admissions representatives, and accessed a library of rich media aimed at helping them take the next step in their education. This innovative event created a live forum for perspective students to gather relevant information, and get a feel for the e-campus and virtual classroom.
Ai worked closely with the APUS marketing department to help make the event a success. APU focuses on high-value, career-relevant programs. APU offers 74 degree programs and 48 certificate programs, in fields ranging from military studies and criminal justice, to business administration, public health and liberal arts.
